We elaborate a traditional Spanish cold soup that is taken after Christmas dinner, very typical in the regions of Castilla La Mancha, Castilla y León and Madrid.
So, this sweet soup is currently made with milk and marzipan.
Adding some cinnamon and a little piece of orange´s skin while cooking which is very useful to improve its dissolution.

Formerly, this soup was made with water instead of milk because before the XX century the Christmas dinner was considered by Christians as the main dinner where dairy products were forbidden.
Undoubtedly, the main secret of this soup comes from the simplicity of their ingredients as well as the ancient handcrafted technique preserved in order to stand out the best of them.
The instructions to make this cold sweet soup are written below:
“Dissolve half liter of cold milk in a pot and add the marzipan paste. Once it is dissolved, start to boil it moving it with a spoon slowly.
